Cognitive issues following a stroke due to Lyme disease - Daniel Cameron MD

A study by Nimgaonkar and colleagues (2015) examines the relationship between cognitive deficits and infectious agents. The authors found a temporal cognitive decline in patients with exposure to infectious agents in a population-based, aging cohort.
The authors reported that exposure to cytomegalovirus (CMV), Herpes Simplex virus, type 1 (HSV-1), Herpes Simplex virus, type 2 (HSV-2), or Toxoplasma gondii (TOX) was associated with cognitive deterioration in older individuals, independent of general age-related variables.
In his post, Cameron raises similar issues about improperly treated Lyme disease.
